Former Elite101 and Freshman450 prospect 2019 LB Owen Pappoe has officially committed to the Auburn University, in recent weeks. Back in 2014 as an 8th grader, Pappoe came in at #63 spot in the 2019 class on Youth1's Elite101 rankings.
The Grayson, GA quickly became a 5-star recruit as a Linebacker after moving on to next level at Grayson High School.
This is an awesome milestone for the former Elite101 prospect, who's been on the national radar since his youth football days.
Youth1 Media has been covering Pappoe since 2014, so it's no surprise to us that he's become one of the elite high school talents in the country.
The 6'0" 212-pound athlete, who is now a Senior in high school, reaffirmed his commit to Auburn via Twitter this past week.
"Let me clear things up...I am 100% committed to Auburn!!! War Eagle," Pappoe said via his personal Twitter account.
